We fly from Ft. McMurray, out over the Wood Buffalo region. The water breaks gently under the floatplane’s pontoons as they skim the surface of a remote lake. 

Snowmobiling - Sno-drifters

The McMurray Sno~Drifters maintain some of the best groomed trails in all of Alberta and once you’ve ridden them, that’s it, you’re hooked for life!
